Beginnings 4 (Vitamin E oil & B&BW)

So like the average teenager, occasionally I break out. Thankfully, I don't have horrible acne, just periods of breaking out. Recently, however, I was breaking out for a long time & it left a lot of marks, so my sister told me to put this Vitamin E oil on my face before I sleep & it should help my marks. After using it for about 4-5 days, there is a pretty evident lightening of my marks. :)

The oil is:
Extra Strength
Vitamin E 32,000 IU
Pure Natural Skin Oil
Scar & Stretch Mark Treatment
(just wrote down the front of the bottle :)

You just dab a little on before you sleep, and while it's a little messy to sleep with (oil!) it helps a lot.

In other news, Bath & Body works is having their semi-annual sale and my sister got these adorable body mist bottles. The scent is country chic, but the bottles are so pretty! :)

Let's not mention how the pretty bottle cost more.... :p haha

Beginnings 3 (Homework break)

Uno: My news resolutions are failing so far :(
Dos: NaBloPoMo is very hard to do when your sleep schedule is wacky and you're awake during school and at night.
Tres: I think I should make resolution #5: Fall asleep the day BEFORE I need to wake up. (aka not in early morning hours)
Cuatro: That's sort of a restatement of fixing my sleep schedule.
Cinco: Why am I numbering this in Spanish? As I'm about halfway through the 3rd A&P Lab about the nervous system, I think I could probably make something about my nervous system and the parietal lobe being confused about all these languages. But I like Spanish.
Seis: Today I had to put serious thought into what 7+7 was
Seite: I think that's very adequate support for why I should go back to kindergarten. Coloring inside the lines sounds like fun.
Ocho: DID YOU KNOW? As of my last birthday, I can legally drop out of High School now. :D
Nueve: I don't really know how to do anything but school work, so working at McDonald's might not work out so well if I drop out. Evaluating my level of common sense, I would probably fail at flipping burgers.
Diez: I think it's time to finish the lab now.

Beginnings 2 (Hearing Problems?)


Back to school today, finals next week...and fixing the sleep schedule didn't work so well the first day...

Quick post because I need to get back to homework. :)

I did a "test" for Anatomy & Physiology as a part of a lab. It required taking a hearing test on The results told me I may be experiencing mild to significant hearing loss. :O Surprised, but then I realized that the test was probably inaccurate, as it was hard to estimate what "barely hearing" a tone qualifies as. Or maybe it was accurate and I'm loosing my hearing :p I completely didn't hear my teacher say this one thing was due Thursday ;)

I'll leave with a sneak peak of the nail post I'll be doing soon :)

Beginnings 1 (NY Resolutions)

Day 1 of NaBlaPoMo, Day 1 of 2012...I liked this popular tweet last night: "Chapter 2012, Page 1 of 366" (Leap year!) it's an interesting way to say it :)

While I'm a goal-oriented person, I've never made New Years resolutions. After watching the ball drop in Times Square on tv (or on my iPod, like this year) life moved on normally without an extra significance of a New Year. Maybe that's why for a couple weeks after the New Year I continue putting the old year on my school papers :)

But for the purpose of this blog, and just some reflection, I compiled a short list of resolutions. They're not necessarily year long goals, but just goals.

Here we go.

1) Read Quran daily/several times a week
2) Read more nonschool books
3) Fix my sleeping schedule
4) Get good grades?

I've already somewhat started 1 and 2 (downloaded a bunch of book samples on iBooks the other day, I'll pick some up from the library tomorrow hopefully ) and 3 and 4 make laugh. For the past several years I've tried to fix my sleeping schedule SOO much & epically failed. It's seems like a joke to put that on a resolutions list. And 4 because academic goals have always existed for me, so it's funny to actually write that down. They're a lot more specific than that, but the general statement covers it :)

Let's see how these resolutions work out...I'll add more over the year, because as I said, I make lots of goals :)

Inshallah may this next year bring happiness and success for everyone. :)
